Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.

Recognized Independent Nanny Exams

The International Nanny Association, a non-profit educational association, has developed the INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam and the INA Nanny Credential Exam that nannies can take directly through the association.

INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam

The INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam tests a nanny’s basic childcare knowledge. No studying is required for this exam and the exam is taken online.

INA Nanny Credential Exam

The INA Nanny Credential Exam tests a nanny’s practical childcare knowledge. To sit for the exam it is recommended that a nanny have at least 2,000 hours of childcare experience and review the study guide Beyond Parenting Basics, The International Nanny Association’s Official Guide to In-Home Childcare. Exam takers must also have current CPR and first aid certification.

The exam is taken online but test takers must secure a proctor to administer the exam. Those who pass the exam earn the title of INA Credentialed Nanny.

Both exams and the nanny credential exam study guide are available in both English and Spanish. Nannies must score at least a 70% for a passing score.

To learn more about the exam or to take the exam, contact the International Nanny Association directly at 888.878.1477 or email admin@nanny.org.
